Captain Janeway’s Not A Geocentrist, Everybody

So yesterday, the Internet had a goddamn field day after finding out that Kate Mulgrew narrated a documentary that presupposes maybe the geocentric model wasn’t debunked? Turns out her, and basically everyone else in it, were tricked about the documentary’s content if not selectively edited into it without their knowledge. Here’s Captain Janeway’s statement on Facebook:

“I understand there has been some controversy about my participation in a documentary called THE PRINCIPLE. Let me assure everyone that I completely agree with the eminent physicist Lawrence Krauss, who was himself misrepresented in the film, and who has written a succinct rebuttal in SLATE. I am not a geocentrist, nor am I in any way a proponent of geocentrism. More importantly, I do not subscribe to anything Robert Sungenis has written regarding science and history and, had I known of his involvement, would most certainly have avoided this documentary. I was a voice for hire, and a misinformed one, at that. I apologize for any confusion that my voice on this trailer may have caused. Kate Mulgrew”

So for the record, Lady Kirk doesn’t believe in geocentrism, but does believe the government should force a woman to carry a child to term where they can then give it up for adoption because she did it once, so what’s your fucking problem? Glad that’s cleared up. Alice Eve boobies for everyone!

  1. Well at least she’s not that stupid. It’s pretty low of them to not inform the voice actors of the content they’re lending their voices to.

      It’s Hollywood. Agents probably go, hey, want to do voiceover for some science stuff? and the actors just think, yeah, that’ll make me look smart!

    “I would also like to complain that Captain Janeway didn’t get to clam-slam tons of intergalactic schlong while Captain Kirk got to put his chode in every orifice smaller than a Jefferies tube.”

    Thank goodness. I think the collective nerd outrage was beginning to affect the planet’s rotation. Or something. It’s sciency stuff, and since I’m American, I’m not sure how it works except that if I believe something enough, that makes it true. There you go. Science, bitches!

  4. I like how they use the term “geocentrism” to make it sound sciencey.

    After watching Star Trek Voyager, I was convinced that the universe revolved around Jeri Ryan.

  6. She’s anti-abortion, but she’s also anti-death penalty, so at least she’s consistent in her views.

    • Technically the death penalty costs more in taxes than keeping someone in prison for life. Plus unwanted babies cost far more than an aborted baby. Not to mention all of the emotional issues. So yes she is being consistent when it comes to wasting tax dollars and generally being a nuisance to society,

    Somehow I feel mildly more confident about the intelligence of our planet.

    I’m out of town for work getting drunk in rehoboth beach every night, surrounded by gay people, that makes me a geogayist

  9. …this, this right here, is exactly why i love Fish …he never forgets, and he never lets us forget. (and he always finds a reason, no matter how flimsy, to link to alice eve’s boobs)

    She’s not making millions of dollars a day or per episode in any production; if she isn’t willing to do research on a project she NARRATES then she doesn’t deserve to have any rebuttal.
